PAVEL NERSESSIAN, piano
"His performance brought a veritable roar of approval from the audience," wrote the Irish Times after Pavel Nersessian received first prize in the GPA Dublin International Piano Competition in 1991.
Pavel Nersessian is widely regarded as one of the most remarkable Russian pianists of his generation. He is known for his ability to play the whole palette of the piano repertoire with equal conviction. Mr. Nersessian has won prizes in every piano competition he has entered, including the Beethoven Competition of Vienna in 1985, the Paloma O'Shea Competition in Santander, and the Tokyo Competition.
Pavel Nersessian's concert activity is very intense. He has been touring throughout Russia and the surrounding states from the age of eight. Since his successes at international competitions, he has given repeat performances in London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Cannes, Leipzig, Vienna, Budapest, Madrid, Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul, Dublin, Muenchen, Caracas, Rio de Janeiro, Belgrade, Cairo, Kiev, and many other locations throughout the world.
Mr. Nersessian has been closely associated with the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. As a child he was a pupil there at the famous Central Music School, where his teacher was Yu Levin, and later he was a student of Prof. S. Dotensky. Upon graduating from the Conservatory in 1987 with the maximum marks - a rare distinction - he was invited to teach there. Pavel Nersessian continues to teach at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory to this day and has also joined the piano department of the Boston University School of Music. He resides in Moscow and in Boston, Mass.
